Room 213 is where you’ll find Mr. Munson’s delicate English Classroom. Your eyes might dart to the beautiful posters filled with mind blowing quotes or maybe the front of the room where you’ll see a handful of things and a great view from the back with a four cornered window in the center of the creamy white walls.

The decor is beautiful, the teacher himself compliments the room as well as Ms. Dowdy and the various colors also. When you turn the grey metal door knob on the thick dark brown wooden door, you’re in for a mighty surprise.
In The First Day by Edward P.Jones and Harper Collins story, the first day the authors are going into detail about little life change. Jones describes the lifestyle of how it is growing up and not being able to interact or get out much to see other people then when one gets the chance to come out of their box, it is somewhat of a cultural shock. The life of growing up that Jones presents somewhat makes it feel like growing up with an uneducated mother could make things somewhat complicated. Jones also mentions one school more than the other. This makes it seem as though one school is better than the other one, possibly because of the location or because of the race at the school. Although the author mentions the less diverse school, the author

Along the east wall of the room, two centers were designated, one being a reading (quiet) center with two bean bag chairs and several book shelves filled with different levels (reading) books. The other center was a manipulative center, which included several puzzles, games, and interactive manipulatives. Along the south wall of the classroom was a long table with three computer stations set up on the table. On the west wall was several cabinets and shelving for teacher supplies and files. Along the north wall was the teacher desk, and another center area with bean bag chairs, and several iPads, cd players, and other technology devices. In the center of the room was three small tables and chairs, which were spaced enough in the room to allow for small group work areas. The lighting in the classroom was bright (fluorescent lighting), with an additional lamp in the reading center. The noise level of the room seemed to stay at a low level with minimal distractions during the observation. Additionally, the temperature of the room was set at 74 degrees, and appeared to be a comfortable setting for everyone
According to Mark Twain, "Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear-not absence of fear.” Courage is what Charlie displays over and over in the book Jasper Jones. In the book Jasper Jones, Jasper and Charlie Bucktin find a dead girl in the forest and if anyone finds the body they will think it was Jasper. That is because Jasper is the town trouble maker. So now Charlie and Jasper must find the killer. Charlie showed courage because he did certain things that would make other kids cower, for example hiding a dead body, standing up to your mom, and stealing some of mad Jacks peaches.
Liz Murray’s mother and father were drug addicts living in the Bronx. She was born in 1980 with drugs in her blood because her parents religiously uses cocaine and heroin. (Murray 11). A vicious cycle of her parent’s use of drugs and mental illness seem to carry throughout several chapters. Murray and her sister survives on egg and mayonnaise sandwiches, toothpaste, and even cherry-flavored chapstick. They reside in a freezing cold and filthy apartment. Her parents just focus on how to maintain their high. From the time she was five, Murray recalls, we were a “functional government-dependent family of four” (Murray14). Her mother was legally blind and a schizophrenic, which qualifies their family for welfare to only pay for her parents’ drug ritual. Throughout, the years of drugs the girls are brought around other users and Liz receives abuse from Ron while her mother is gone to the liquor store one night. Her mother also eventually breaks the news to Liz that she has HIV. The drugs drive a wedge in between her parents which leads them to separation. This seems to really affect Liz along with the new diagnosis of her mom.
On the corner of School Ave and 5th Street a small playground rests on a sandy pit dusted with footprints of different shapes and sizes. Each day a surfeit of students stomp over the play equipment during their fifteen minute recess. In an office close by this playground, Principal Harriet Taylor is hard at work as she reaches the final stride in her career as an administrator at Springfield Elementary School. In June when the kids abandon the playground for summer, Harriet will abandon the office, relinquishing her duties as principal for the lure of retirement. Before Harriet could even dream of the office she works in today, she was romping all over the same playground many Springfield students use today. Harriet Taylor’s family moved to Bay County when she was eight years old and Harriet began third grade at none other than Springfield Elementary School. “It’s kind of cool that I got to start here and now I’m ending here.” she says with a proud smile, a Springfield tiger through and through.
In 1988 Patrick Modiano came across an ad in the newspaper "Missing, a young girl, Dora Bruder, age 15, height 1 m 55, oval-shaped face, gray-brown eyes, gray sports jacket, maroon pullover, navy blue skirt and hat, brown gym shoes." (Modiano 3). The ad was put in the paper by Dora’s parents after she had ran away from her private boarding school; that her parents sent her off to. Modiano chose to follow Dora Bruder from place to place for several different reasons. One main reason is because he wanted to answer the question on why she would want to run from the people helping her hide. She had to hide from getting taken to the Nazi concentration camps. He encounters many different obstacles on his quest on trying to follow her steps and find out what happened to Dora. One obstacle he faces is when he is trying to get more information on
She might have been better off alone. She knew she was better off alone. She didn 't need a man to control her life anymore. But how could she let all the memories slip away? Six years of being together was all a waste of time. How could she be so oblivious to all the signs he was showing? If she had a clue, she would have ended the relationship and not been the one sitting at home crying.
"Sometimes we need someone to simply be there. Not to fix anything, or to do anything in particular, but just to let us feel that we are cared for and supported."
At first glance the campus of UNB Saint John doesn’t look like much but once you take the time to explore the campus you discover many things from such a small place. The university it’s self has four main buildings where classes are held, these building surround an open greenery area known to most students as the quad. The buildings surrounding the quad are old and in some ways ancient but share a unique beauty to them. Sir Douglas Hazen Hall and Philp W. Oland Hall are both exteriorly untouched and share that ancient feel to the campus. K.C. Irving Hall and William F. Ganong Hall are connected to each other and both bring a more modern vibe to the campus. Beside the quad is NBCC Saint John Allied Health Centre and Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick

As the party began to wind down, Zoe stayed behind on the pretense of helping Sarah and Janet clean up. Although they had a cleaning crew arriving in the morning, they needed to throw away food and drinks that were left out. While cleaning, she watched John slip into his office, and a moment later, she followed. When she entered, she found him sitting in his chair and stroking his shaft. She locked the door and whispered huskily, "Are you imagining me, Mr. Nordstrom?" The older man 's head had shot up, but instead of answering, he began stroking harder. Without a word, Zoe crossed the room and hiked her skirt up, straddling his lap. She pushed her panties aside and with one hand on his shoulder and looking into his eyes, she lowered herself onto his turgid cock. Her velvet-lined pussy tightly squeezed his length, and they fucked hard and fast. Moments later, his load spent in her young pussy, she left the office and finished cleaning the
